Title: HYBRID POWER TOOLS
Abstract:
Electrical devices such as tools or tool systems are described which receive electrical power from either a separable battery or an electrical power cord. In certain versions, the tools include both a power cord receptacle and a battery receiving region located along the exterior of the tool housing. The tools can be configured such that when a battery is powering the tool, connection of a power cord to the tool is precluded. The tools can also be configured so that when a power cord is connected to the tool, connection of a battery is precluded. In particular, a hybrid drain cleaning tool system is also described that includes a hybrid drain cleaning tool in combination with a separable battery. Also described are hybrid powered threader devices and hybrid powered saw devices.
